Around this time of the year, the tourism promotion activities in Haiphong have gradually become normal after long time seriously impacted by Covid-19. Tourism enterprises have taken solutions and strategies in strong efforts to recover tourism with special priority given to domestic tourism and attraction of visitors to Haiphong.
According to initial statistics in the first 5 months of 2020, the business activities of travel agencies only make up 30-35% of the previous year, with the majority of domestic tours as international flights to Vietnam or vice versa are still cancelled. In spite of witnessing the positive signals as a series of new projects serving tourism have been put into operation as Cat Hai – Phu Long cable car system, Dragon Do Son artificial beach with the 5-star hotels as Flamingo Cat Ba or M’Gallery, the number of tourists to Haiphong is not high. So, offering the tourism packages with incentive prices and tightened association among tourism units is one of the focal solutions to stimulate tourism demands.
Mr. Doan Thanh Hong – Hoa Trung, Director of Transport and Tourism Company: Besides, Haiphong’s tourism companies have beefed up association with partners in other cities and provinces to raise the business efficiency, boost dissemination and advertisement of the potentials of Haiphong’s tourism as safe, friendly and captivating destination; encouraged the people to provide the tourism services with the open and hospitable behaviors at the tourist sites. Moreover, the city will continue strengthening the management, ensuring the clean environment, safety and security for visitors so that Haiphong will always be the top choice of local and foreign tourists./.
